One of the most important parts of preparedness is having the right first aid supplies. Because food storage and bug out bags always seem to steal the show, first aid sometimes gets overlooked. Having at least one first aid kit around the home is great, but that’s just the tip of the ice burgh.
You should always have some sort of medical kit with you at all times, and that includes your family members. We should all have first aid kits in our cars, our bug out/in bags, as well as in the home.
Our children know we’re “crazy preppers”, and it’s quickly becoming a tradition to give them a prepper gift at Christmas. This year it was first aid kits. We do this because 3 of them have recently moved out, and are ‘adulting” as they call it. They may not like them very much, but we do…and that’s all that matters.
